Looking Outwards-12-aboyle

Due to the way that my partner and I are planning to split up the workload, I’m more focused on the generation of the quotes. I looked for random quote generators online to see what other people have done. The first one I found, http://www.manythings.org/rs/svoc.html, is a random sentence generator. It was created in 1998 by Charles Kelly for a collection called “Interesting Things for ESL Students”. I like this project because it’s very good at breaking down the parts of speech and being consistent in the generation of words so that the final sentences actually make sense. Unfortunately, the sentences themselves are not very fun.

The second project I found is http://inspirobot.me/. It is described as an “artificial intelligence dedicated to generating unlimited amounts of unique inspirational quotes.” I like this project because it creates funny and unique quotes that still have the special “inspirational quote” flavor. It tends to be more engaging than the first generator, partly because of the random photos the quotes are displayed on. My one complaint would be that pressing the “generate” button over and over is not particularly fun.
